Artificial Intelligence and Metaverse : Legal aspects

8 June 2022 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (Paris time)

The network members will first analyze the European and global framework for Artificial Intelligence, with focus on the draft European Regulation that aims to ensure trustworthy AI. Then they will review the metaverse, this new parallel universe whose nature and content are still unclear, but which already raises multiple legal and ethical issues, and discuss the relevance of a metaverse law.
